whether or not your district(s) have "black out" days -- days on which teachers may not call out, unless they are really sick?

I have not heard of this officially, but have heard through the grapevine that some of my districts stipulate that teachers may not take off the day right before or right after a holiday or a three day weekend.

I'm not sure if my district has this policy but I have worked for several companies that had this policy. They just don't want people taking extra "vacation" time. One company I worked for required a doctor's note if you called out the day before or after a holiday.

The district I student-taught in had that policy. When I mentioned it while subbing in the next district over, though, they were shocked at the idea. So it really varies.

We are not allowed to take days off right by a holiday or days off of school. But of course there are exceptions, they just must be approved.

One of the districts where I sub (and where I student taught) has this policy. The SUPERINTENDENT has to approve any day off that bookends a holiday (either the day preceding or the day following a holiday).

Ditto Teachermom & Melsub. We need to get superintendent OK to take a day before or after a holiday.

Where I taught it was in the contract -- maximum of 5 teachers (district wide) could take personal days just before or after long weekends/holiday breaks. First come, first serve.

Sick days weren't addressed.
